Default New GMC Sierra Z71

About 2 1/2 years ago I gave up my truck and leased a Toyota Camry, mostly for the gas mileage. After many years of driving SUVs or trucks it was hard to get used to a car, especially in the winters(I forgot what being stuck was ) Anyway, I never could warm up to that car as soon as I could I started looking for a new ride.
After trying out a a bunch of full and mid size trucks and SUVs, I came away most impressed with GMC Sierra SLT Z71, GM is also offering sweet lease incentives...which sealed the deal.

I'd guess its because this one has the Z71 package with 18" rims, larger tires and Rancho suspension.

My trucks have all been GM, 1982, 1985, 1995,1996,1998, 2002, 2004 and my current one is a 2010, All standard cab long bed or short bed. My 2010 rides great now that I put a leveling kit on the front, that coil over in the front makes for a sweet plush ride.

I should not say all have been GM, I had a 97 Dakota that I got free so there is that.

I have an '05 Silverado 1500 2x4 Ext Cab "Special Edition" (whatever that is). I bought it 3 yrs ago with on 53,000 Kilometers on it. Just turned 80,000 (50,000 miles) this summer. Obviously we don't drive it much LOL. Has the trailer towing pkg and all the options.

Love the truck but dang it sure "hammers" hard when going over potholes and sunken man hole covers.
